An up-and-coming white grape from the coastal regions of Italy, Vermentino marries lively acidity with stony minerality.
The best Vermentinos come from very different parts of Italy—from Liguria in the north and from the island of Sardinia, off the central west coast. Drink Vermentino with seafood dishes of all kinds.
